Most important living composer.

Which living composer(s) will still be remembered as having made an important and original conrtibution to composed music in, lets say, one hundred years time?

My suggestions would be Helmut Lachenmann and Georg Kurtag.

RE: Most important living composer.

To me it is Phillip Glass. I don’t normally listen to classical music, but you will be familiar of him if you have seen movies like Secret Window (2004), and The Truman Show (1998), amongst many others. His music was also used by a friend of mine as part of a wedding music he did last year. Another instance is when a DJ tried to mix it at a wedding I attended. The mix combined with Glass’ signature minimalism was perfect.
